Scouting Report
Assets: Boasts an ideal pitchers' frame, so he is durable enough to pitch deep in games. When on his game, he is throwing strikes with consistency. Displays great control. Owns a slow curve that is a quality out-pitch for him.
Flaws: Doesn't always have an extra mile an hour on his fastball when he needs it (his fastball can get hammered when he's not pinpoint), and he generally lacks dominant stuff. Injuries are also a problem here.
Career Potential: Solid starter with a little upside, when healthy.
